It was a unique experience for sure; being in the middle of nowhere with no electricity after 10pm. I didn't wander much outside the camp but the scenery was really beautiful. It was chilly and drizzling most of the time but I managed to stay in a hut by myself without a working heater. The owners were very accomodating and... More

You know when you find a place and you feel you just nailed it? That´s the exact feeling I had when staying at Gunn´s Motor Camp. We were looking for something cheap and confortable to stay, I didn´t want to stay near the Sound, since it is too busy, expensive and loud. Gunn´s camp it is a perfect spot, you... More

I have stayed here twice, once prior to tramping the Hollyford track and recently when we had a fishing trip to Milford sound. There is a newish well equipped (ie gas cookers, log fire, plenty of table space) kitchen block, but take your own cooking pots, cutlery etc. The sleeping hut (historic huts), was warmly heated by a woodburner with...

Having looked down on Gunn's Camp from the Harris Saddle we have often wondered about it - looks like a chess board from the Routeburn Track! It is a typically, quirky Kiwi situation. My husband stayed there recently for a couple of days at the end of the Hollyford Track. He found it delightful and fun. It does have a... More

Stayed here as part of a group tour! We got in late that evening & out first thing the next morning. Nice fire and kitchen area. The room we had was like an igloo, had to sleep fully clothed it was that cold. Heater didn't offer much heat at all. Bunk beds are made of solid wood an with a... More

We went there just by chance, after our visit to Mildford Sound. We rented a tiny rustic hut, with a bunk bed and nothing else in it and we had a really good night's rest. But what's best is the common kitchen and closed dining area, which is pretty new and well equipped. So finally, there was an escape from... More

I've visited Gunn's camp a few times over the years and on my last visit I was pleased to see that even though it still retains it's "rustic" charm they have built a new kitchen/dining area. Very big with a fire and gas cookers, plenty of seating and tables. There is a veranda outside as well as new toilets inside.... More

A group of five of us stayed in one of the cabins. The place is full of history and the owners obviously have a great sense of humour with all the little signs around. It was raining most of the time but the hut was cosy with the little logburner we had going. The owner kept the boiler in the... More

This place was unexpected in our trip. We didn't know where we were going to camp for the night and just happened to pass by; so glad we did. Loved all the quirky signs; so creative and cute. The owners, Lyn and Reid, were so nice too. One note of advice, beware of the sandflies, but those who live in... More
